The Excalibur has a Unique Drying System
Excalibur dehydrators feature the Parallexx™ Drying System for even drying.
Horizontal airflow provides even drying, eliminating tray re-stacking.
Drying is fast and heat is not lost as the dehydrator doesn’t need to be taken apart to change the tray sequence.
This temperature controlled, fan forced, horizontal drying system is mounted in the rear of the unit. Cool air is drawn in the back, heated and distributed evenly across each tray, pushing moisture out of the front of the machine.
As the heated air flows across the produce, not AT or ON the produce, drying times are shortened as there is no direct heat, only evenly dispersed heated air thus having minimal impact on the nutritional values of your produce
Hyperwave™ Fluctuation Technology
The Excalibur Dehydrator has Exceptional Performance Excalibur dries BETTER, FASTER & SAFER thanks to our Hyperwave™ Fluctuation Technology
Ordinary dehydrators produce constant, unchanging heat causing “case hardening,” a dry surface with moisture trapped inside — a perfect environment for yeast, mold, and bacteria growth.
Excalibur’s Adjustable Thermostat lets you take advantage of Hyperwave Fluctuation (changing heat through the drying cycle) for faster, better, safer dried foods.
As the temperature fluctuates up the surface moisture evaporates. Then as the temperature fluctuates down the inner moisture moves to the drier surface.
The food temperature stays LOW enough to keep the enzymes active, and the air temperature gets high enough to dry food fast, overcoming yeast, mold, and bacteria growth and spoilage.
Dry Outside - Dry Inside
With the adjustable Hyperwave™ thermostat you have total control Excalibur’s Adjustable Thermostat lets you take advantage of Hyperwave™ Fluctuation (changing heat through the drying cycle) for faster, better, safer dried foods.
Gone are the days when you had to watch over your dehydrating produce concerned about over dehydrating your precious produce. With the 26 hour Hyperwave thermostat, you can set and forget.
In a very short time with a bit of practice, you'll be able to set your dehydrator up even while you're resting with the reassurance that your food is in good hands within the control centre of Excalibur.
